What Is A Microchip?
A Microchip is an electromagnetic coil in a capsule the size of a grain of rice (see picture below comparing the two). Once inserted into your pet, it provides an inexpensive but permanent means of identification throughout the life of your pet.

The microchip is inserted into the scruff of the pets neck in a quick and painless manner. Each one has it’s own unique identification number. Once implanted the microchip remains electronically inactive until scanned by a special microchip scanner.

The Microchip responds to a low voltage electronic signal from a scanner and transmits its unique code, which is then displayed. This then allows Vets, Pet Rescue Staff, Dog Wardens and the Police to then access a database to discover the identity of the pet and its owner.

Microchipping was introduced to the UK in 1989 and there are now several million pets with a microchip. It is unique in that it has a patented anti-migration cap which ensures that the microchip cannot move around the body of the pet.
A Microchip is suitable for all pets and is acknowledged to be the most acceptable form of permanent identification available for companion animals. It is permanent, tamperproof, reliable and painless.

Should your pet go missing we recommend you take the following steps:

  • First phone 0870 6066 751 and report your missing pet.
  • Check with neighbours to make sure your pet is not with them or hiding in a shed, garage or similar.
  • Advise your own vet, plus all local rescue centres and charities.
  • Put up simple signs around your locality asking for help in locating your lost pet.
